I've never built a pc before. I fell in love with the R5 Define when I saw it. I can't figure out whether or not I should water cool my cpu or not though. I'm going to be putting in a Gigabyte 980 ti in it and will probably get a second one in the future when it becomes necessary. My idea for using the H100i GTX was to stick it in the front as an intake to give the cpu the best possible cooling, then sticking the front fan that comes with the case on the bottom and getting a third case fan to stick in the slot on the side panel to make sure the GPUs don't get too hot from the exhaust coming from the radiator. I wasn't sure if it'd be worth it to do all that or to just have two front intake fans and use an air cooler for my CPU.
TL;DR will the exhaust from my CPU cooler blowing straight into my (eventually) two Gigabyte 980 ti's make things too hot for them or will it be fine?
